Why does the world pay attention to this woman? What has she done of any real value? What has she got to contribue? Why is si she interesting?
Because this is what matters to us. Expensive THINGS, thepeople who make them. The people who wear adn carry and own them. The people who buy them. This is her shoe closet. If, instead of buying these Louboutains, she had spent the money on a charitable cause, would it have made a difference?
This is how ELLE descrobes her in their interview, from which thses images come: "reality star, entrepreneur, fashion plate, and famous family member." This is her husband's shoe closet.
" 2 of 16 Autoplay Prev Next Step-and-Repeat “I love all of my shoes! It is a must to have them color coordinated, and to be able to see each and every one of them. I know exactly where each one lives and I can tell if one has even been moved! It definitely helps to put one shoe facing front, and the other to the back. It saves space, but it is also nice to be able to see the back-side of the shoe. I am an organization freak!”

These shoes are my Sex and the City shoes—I actually wore them when the Lakers won the Championship last year. And my phone…my office is not complete without this beautiful thing! My bling phone makes business calls nearly stress free.”
“As you might have noticed that I have a reoccurring theme in my closet: sparkles, glitz, and bling… essentially anything that glitters!” And “When I saw these, they were a must! I felt like they were calling my name. I love adding a little rock-and-roll to my wardrobe. I can wear jeans, a tank top and these shoes and look instantly put-together. It really is all about the shoes.”

“I love how high these Fendi shoes are. I’m tall, but I embrace my height and I love to add to it. Alexander McQueen was a phenomenal designer— I wore this dress to the People’s Choice Awards. This dress brings back memories because I had red hair then… man, I miss my red hair. Don’t get me started about this white tassle Louboutin purse. I have no idea when I will wear it, but I just had to snatch it up because it’s so unique.” and "I love this shot, all my beauties lined up down the stairs."
Whatever the meaning of life is, it isn’t this.
A wholly irrelevant airhead and her cave of shiny baubles? It should be the first line in a fable. With a happy ending - a moral learned? A point made? * Instead of which it’s a feature in ELLE magazine. And it’s published without irony, for readers to admire it’s subject and covet her excesses.
Enough. Enough! ENOUGH!
There is more, but you are going to have to hurry on over to ELLE to read it.
I feel a little sick.
* Pick a lesson, any lesson: For a happy, decent life live simpler and with less than you need? All that glitters is not gold? Golden boys and girls all must, like chimney sweeps return to dust? Etc.
